  • How2 copy folder structure only (W/OUT the files)?

    Hi,
    Is it possible to copy the folder structure from one folder to another without actually copying all the files with in it. Just leaving you with an identical empty structure.
    Sorry if this has been asked before but i couldnt find anything in the help.

    Cheers,
    Alex

    Hi Alex!

    I don't think that this is possible without any tricks but I'm not 100% sure.

    As a workaround I suggest the following:
    Simply create in any folder which has no child-folder a zero-byte file named for example MSCREATE.DIR and give the file-attribute 'hidden'.
    Now you set a file-filter in BC to only see MSCREATE.DIR which can be synced easily ...

    Maybe it helps?



    Bye

      Yes, this is possible.

      1. Change your File Filters to -*.* so it excludes all files.
      2. Use the Actions->Synchronize Folders->Custom Sync command.
      3. In the Custom Sync dialog Just selection and Only affect visible files should be unchecked and Create empty folders should be checked.
      4. Use the Mirror Left to Right (or right to left) sync type.
